    Solochaser you really wanna know???? You'll have to sell your soul....Muhahahaha...no not really....ok heres the secert.

    When you cut leather or buy it (espically precut) you have a sharp 90 degree angle. You need a edge beveler. I prefer to use a keen edge beveler. You will run it down the corners of the edge and trim it off, front and back, making it round off.
    Then take some gum trach and apply it to the edge. Then take a edge slicker and rub it back and forth along the end fast. The smooth plastic creates friction and the heat will bond the leather fibers together making it very smooth and slick and shiny.
